Xylan coating prevents leaks

Pressure vessels, valves, pipe unions, storage tanks, reactors, pipelines and other fluid containment equipment are often fitted with threaded plugs for inspection, pressure relief, filling or tapping.

 

Coatings on pipe plugs not only improve their performance and reliability but also make them easier to use. A thin film of Xylan eliminates the PTFE tape normally wrapped around the threads to seal them. The thin Xylan dry-film lubricant provides consistent thread thickness and lubricity level for more consistent make up torques.

 

In addition, the corrosion protection and low-friction properties of the coating greatly reduce breakout torques, enabling users to remove the plugs at a later date without destroying them.

 

In most instances, the pipe plugs may be reused without difficulty.

 

Xylan coatings are also available in many colors, enabling users to color-code particular plug sizes and alloys.
